Do you have a favourite article of clothing that you wish you could wear every day? Or do you perspire a lot when you exercise? If only you didn’t have to do laundry so often – can the environment really afford it? You bet! It’s just a matter of choosing the right programme.

Neff ’s fully automatic washing machines have a number of programmes for every type of fabric and every situation. For example, the practical short programme, Rapid 15, washes and rinses in just 15 minutes. Perfect for lightly soiled items that can save you energy and water. It uses just 1.12 kWh of electricity and 36 litres of water. By familiarising yourself with and understanding the new energy label you’ll be able to discover which are the most energy efficient appliances for you to consider.


  1. Supplier’s name or trademark and model identifier
  2. Energy efficiency class
  3. Annual energy consumption, based on 220 standard washing cycles. Actual energy consumption will depend on how the appliance is used
  4. Water consumption in litres per year, based on 220 standard washing cycles. Actual water consumption will depend on how the appliance is used
  5. Rated capacity in kilograms, based on the standard 60°C cotton programme at full load or the standard 40°C cotton programme at full load, whichever is the lower
  6. Spin-drying efficiency class
  7. Acoustical noise emissions in decibels, calculated during the washing and spinning phases, for the standard 60°C cotton programme at full load
  8. Numbering of the regulation


The energy classification is based on an energy efficiency index (EEI) which measures the improvement in the annual energy consumption value. The annual consumption indicated on the label takes into account: the energy consumption in the 60°C cotton programme at full and partial load, the energy consumption in the 40°C cotton programme at partial load, and also the energy consumption while in the left-on mode and off-mode.

The values for the water consumption and the spin-drying efficiency class are based on the same set of cycles as the energy consumption data.

The energy efficiency classes are outlined in the following table:

Energy Efficiency ClassEnergy Efficiency Index EEIAverage energy saving compared to efficiency class “A”
A+++ (most efficient)EEI < 4632%
A++46 ≤ EEI < 5224%
A+52 ≤ EEI < 5913%
A59 ≤ EEI < 68
B68 ≤ EEI < 77
C77 ≤ EEI < 87
D87 ≤ EEI < 100
